Would be cool because you could choose between different tail light styles instantly (although I'm sure asshole designers will never give you the option)
Other that that possibility, it seems extremely distracting and just another thing to fail.

I would reprogram it to display "Slower Traffic keep RIGHT" and flash that every time I pass someone on the right.

My Ride: '99 Techno Violet M3
Why can't the germans get tail lamps right? I saw a very new 997.5 911 turbo at the gas station the other day and guess what? Tail lamp out.

"Officer, I just got the car at BMW Greensboro and look what they're done to my Beemer!!" he whines.
"You makes me sick" officer responds, "So worried about your BMW; but don't even notice your left arm is missing?"
"OMG.." lawyer replies. "Where's my Rolex?"
